Hi All, how are you all doing? It's been a few years since I last visited this forum. Good to see some familiar names still posting, although it does look quiet on here.

We'll after a long layoff I've finally got the urge to go fishing again, and with any luck I should be out this weekend.

My club tickets ran out ages ago, so I'm going to have a look at day ticket stretches of the Lea near me.

Hi Jigotai, welcome back.

Verulum AC does half year memberships and as you probably know they have some of the better stretches of river and stillwaters in Herts, Beds and Essex so it’s worth joining.them.

Anyway I hope you catch lots of quality fish.

I've logged in for the first time in an age, too - forgot my password and there's no way to retrieve it as the forgotten password routine doesn't work. But now I've remembered it and here I am :-)

Well I have logged in today for the first time in ages. I have moved from Essex to the Suffolk Norfolk border and joined Bungay Cherry Tree Angling Club. Lots of the river Waveny to go at and I am looking forward to exploring it. I got a bit carp focused in Essex but it seems that there is a lot more traditional coarse fishing up here so all good. I might need some pointers along the way so its good to reconnect with you all


take a look at my blog
